  1. Uncut is the real deal guys, i have tried alot of preworkouts but none have given the great mix of focus clean energy and pumps like this. I just wish it lasted till my wrist/hand was 10% to see what I can really do lol

    Awesome workouts the past few days! Glad you think Uncut is the real deal and not just a hype floating around. AppNut definitely delivers w/ their products. Yeah hopefully when your wrist recovers to 100% you give Uncut another shot

    As far as ab workouts, other than your typical crunches I like adding cable wood choppers for obliques, cable crunches, weighted hip raises and planks for your core. May sound silly, but I found P90x's Ab Ripper X really good for a burn. The rest of the program is sorta "meh".

  3. Another great leg workout today!!!

    worked up to 330 for 1 on squat - new pr! - still got more!

    265x5
    265x5
    270x5

    Leg ext - 4 sets 10-15 double drop on last 2 sets

    Leg Press- 4 sets 15-20 - pr'd on this too! double drop on last 2 sets - all reps were constant tension with slow negatives , crazy pump!!

    Hack squat - quads were pretty wrecked by now - 4 sets 10-15 double drop on last set - constant tension with slow negatives again!

    1 leg smith squat (foot elevated) - tried a greater range of motion and actually touched my back knee to the ground on every rep, didnt need much weight at all - 4 sets 8-10

    Glute Bridge - been a while since i did these but felt good!

    185x10
    205x10
    225x10x2

    RDL - been reading that hamstrings response better to lower reps so i went with it but due to my wrist i couldn't go too heavy, just didnt wanna risk it, still got a good stimulus on this

    185x10
    205x8
    205x8
    215x6
    220x6

    Seated leg curl
    4 sets 8-10 double drop on last 2 sets - also tried plantarflexed eccentrics to really focus on the hamstrings, tires them out fast!

  4. focus was crazy today and didnt need like any of my pre w/o that i usually sip throughout which is crazy on a leg day, i mightve taken like 4 sips the entire time.........CRAZYNESS

  5. also, im stopping if in hope of mroe muscle....still doin 12 hr fast but will rarely train fasted and will always have post workout carbs/protein then a meal then more meals lol, cals will be around 3600 want to carb cycle I was thinkin 360-400 on high days 200-225 med days and 10-125 on low days what do u guys think? Also, protein like 1.5 g bw or 2g? then rest fat? thanks~!

  6. 1.5 is good enough protein if you're bulking. That carb cycle looks good.
    Looks like you had one hell of a leg workout! Grats on the PR

  7. thanks man!!! so then if i cycle carbs and do lets say 250g protein which is about 1.5 x bw then the rest is always fats?cuz on low carb days thats ALOT of fat, no problem with me though i think i like fat more than carbs lol

    Sorry I missed the fat part. I take back what I said about getting 250g of protein. As you may need a bit more to compensate to meet your calorie goals. Yeah it may seem like a lot of fat, but remember the lower the carbs, the higher the protein/fats has to be. Think of it as doing a paleo diet for a day or two a week. As long as you meet the calorie intake goal for that low carb day you'll be fine.

    I'm going to try this as well as my metabolism is super high. I ate about 450g carbs for the last few months of my bulk and didn't think about my insulin not being sensitive.

  9. yea i think i might keep protein round 300

  10. thats still pretty high fat on low carb days though but its allgood

  11. today was back day....didnt do deads cuz my legs are still supersore and i forgot my belt and flat shoes

    yeah that seems to be what everyone is concerned about when trying it out. I suppose taking in a few extra protein shakes specifically on that day will help get your calorie intake higher.

  13. ehh im not to concerned, i like fat i like protein i like food, i trynot to have too many shakes

  14. legs didnt fel 100% today so i did not push it, didnt do my crazy double drops all over like usual either lol

    225x5x6 sets - pause at bottom, explode up - the bottom of my squat is by far my weakest point - i can have the bar come off my back with my max but it takes a while to get it up, if i could strengthen the bottom id be a monster!

    banded squat - for explosiveness - 195x3x10

    sum0 deadlift - 275x5x6 - jsut focusing on really squeezing my glutes

    leg ext 4 sets 12015 double drop on last set only

    Hamstring pulled from 2 weeks ago on my left leg. From the glute down to the calf is tight. Still recovering from it, sucks. Though I can still work out upper body, hard part is walking or sitting so basically took a week off. Driving sucks too. I've got a Jeep wrangler, which is a bit raised and got a stick shift truck.

  18. ahh thats right i remember.....gl with that man

  19. today was chest/tris/abs.....felt stronger today did more on incline dbs than i can remember in a long time, but it has been a while since i used to always start of with heavy flat barbell presses but those bother my wrist now.

    60x8+3 forced

    rope crunches ss bicycles 4 sets

    decline crunch ss decline oblique crunch ss decline twists 4 sets

  20. today was a good back workout...started off really focused and strong and hit a pr on DL! Also it was at my school gym where any time in the past i had gone there the weights seemed way heavier, not sure why but my weights always were down there in the past. Today however my DL pr still happened so that means its probably even better than what i did!!!

    DL - 425 PR

    315x5
    325x5
    335x5
    345x5
    355x5

    explosive Pause low box squat - really trying to build power out of the hole on my squat , that is by far my weak spot.

    185x3x10

    Pendlay rows

    145x8
    155x8
    165x6
    170x6 PR

    Neutral grip cable row ( weird angle, its like a 45 degree inclined low cable row) 4 sets 10-15 drop on last set

    Assisted pull ups 4 sets 10-15 drop on last set

    A few different hammer strength row machine for 3 sets 10-12

    pull over machine 4 sets 10-15 drop on last set 0 been a long tim since i used one of these, felt good!


    my body felt weird liek lacking intensity after th squats, maybe it was neurological due to the heavy deads and then squats.

  21. Grats on the DL pr! I tried heavy DL before squats and my lower back was just taxed when it was time for squats. I figure if I want to try and pr on both then I'd do heavy DLs on back day and squats on leg day.

  22. yea i never try to pr both no way....i was jsut focusing on speed out of the hole on the squats , low reps, low weight but high speed, back felt good, suprisingly actually cuz it usually does bother me after DLS.........i have been doin them sumo style too which is new to me but i really like the glute, ham activation and seems much easier on my back.

  23. unfortunately uncut is all gone :-( amazing run though, really enjoyed it....thanks again to dewey and appnut for letting me try this it was awsome!!!

    final review will be up soon, swamped with school right now

    Appreciate you doing this while your wrist was injured. Hope it gets better bro!

  25. Alright..................FINAL REVIEW!!!

    Although it was a short run it was a great one!!!

    Energy 10/10- i usually dosed only 1 cap at a time and had excellent energy,never a crackedout feeling but cleanfocused energy. I normally need more than the recommended dosage of a preworkout. Clean energy, never any sort of crash that hit within 15 min fasted and about 25 with food.

    Focus- 9.5/10 - only reason it is not a 10 is cuz focus xt beats it, but focus xt is also is advertised as a focus product not as a pre workout. With that said, focus is a deal breaker with me and pre workouts and Uncut is the real deal.....sooo focused, clear sustained for hours!!! one day a guy actually came up to me and asked what was wrong cuz i was like staring at him i guess and didnt realize it lol

    Pumps- 9/10- this was surprising
    to me since Uncut is not advertised as really enhancing pumps like many other preworkouts but i got better pumps on this than 90% of preworkouts I have tried. It was the first time my quads ever felt pumped from doing heavy squats, normally only with with higher rep work.

    Strength -
    8/10 - MY strength consistently went up on this product that is really all I can say about that and I am sure as hell happy it did haha, that is not to say it would not have without it but UNCUT definitely helped me through some tough workouts!

    OVERALL- pretty damn close to 10/10 - overall just an amazing product!!! Gained about a pound in the 3 weeks I was using it with no noticeable fat gain and strength went up. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a product to help them take their workouts to the next level. And being a pill it is simple to take anywhere!!!

    thanks again to dewey and appnut for this opportunity and look forward to using more of your products in the future and maybe being lucky enough to run another log, i really enjoyed it. It was great having people following along and offering their insight!
